Where is this email alias hiding?

Hey all,

I have what hopefully is a simple question.  It is important, hence the points assigned.

I am taking over for another system admin and am trying to resolve an issue with incoming email.  This site has an Exchange 2003 server and it is set up as the primary MX for their domain.  They have an email alias coming in (systems@mydomain.com) and I can't see where they configured it.  It isn't a distribution group, which is what I would have expected.  I know it is going to the Exchange users as I got a response from one of the recipients saying he received my test.  So where else could this alias/group be hiding?

Thanks so much!

go to Exchange System Manager..

Expand Receipient - receipient policies

Nope, there's nothing there (just the default policy).  Any other places?

what does it say in the PROPERITS of the default policy?
Search in aduc for the object with that email address and see what it comes up with. You will have to do an advanced search and make sure that you include all types of Exchange objects.
